Chicago Mens A Capella (CMAC)

The handsome and talented gentlemen of CMAC sing our Alma Mater.

I’m Strong For Chicago

I’m strong for Chicago: C-H-I-C-A-G-O
The girls are the fairest, the men are the squarest, of any old place I know.
I’m strong for Chicago,/The place where the breezes blow
No matter the weather we’ll all stick together for C-H-I-C-A-G-O.

Gotta get to know your school songs, after all! Thanks again to CMAC for the great tunes.

Today we gladly sing the praise
     Of her whose daughters and whose sons
Now loyal voices proudly raise
     To bless her with our benisons.
Of all fair mothers fairest she,
     Most wise of all that wisest be,
Most true of all the true say we,
     Is our dear Alma Mater.

Her mighty learning we would tell,
     Tho’ life is something more than lore;
She could not love her children well,
     Loved she not truth and honor more.
We praise her breadth of charity,
     Her faith that truth shall make us free,
That right shall live eternally,
     We praise our Alma Mater.

The City White hath fled the earth,
     But where the azure waters lie,
A nobler city hath its birth,
     The City Gray that ne’er shall die.
For decades and for centuries,
     Its battlemented tow’rs shall rise,
Beneath the hope-filled western skies,
     ’Tis our dear Alma Mater.

Thanks to Chicago Men’s A Cappella for the lovely performance. 

CMAC bringin’ it back.

<3 Yay UChicago.

This song 1. gives me goosebumps 2. makes me cry

WHY ARE THE IRISH AND SCOTTISH SO GOOD AT MAKING ME CRY WITH THEIR MAGICAL MUSIC

Chicago Men’s A Capella

They welcome first-years with song (and funny facial expressions) beneath Hull Gate at Convocation. Catch the gorgeous men of CMAC at their Christmas concert on December 3rd. 

Today we gladly sing the praise
     Of her whose daughters and whose sons
Now loyal voices proudly raise
     To bless her with our benisons.
Of all fair mothers fairest she,
     Most wise of all that wisest be,
Most true of all the true say we,
     Is our dear Alma Mater.

Alma mater sing-along! If the internet tells you to do it, it’s not weird. Learn those lyrics (and, if not singing, at least listen to the gorgeous tones of Chicago Men’s A Capella).
